Angel Tree

Angel Tree
To ensure all of our Upchurch angels have a wonderful holiday season, we are planning to host an Angel Tree. Located in the main office, our Angel Tree holds many angels that are just waiting to be adopted. Anyone can adopt an angel...students, staff, parents, church groups, boy/girl scout troops, etc. and can adopt as many as you like. 

When you pick up your angel, you will be given specific information about your angel. We ask that you try to buy your angel at least one toy and one clothing item, but you are welcome to "spoil" them as much as you would like.  

Please contact Russchelle Strickland, School Social Worker for more information. 

You may begin selecting angels Wednesday, November 19, 2014
